Gustavo Dudamel on Ravel, Korngold and Richard Strauss (17 min.)

In his acclaimed concerts with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Gustavo Dudamel has for a long time focused mainly on Russian, French and Latin American composers. However, the programme of his guest appearance in April 2012 included a work from the orchestra’s core German repertoire for the first time: Richard Strauss’s tone poem Also Sprach Zarathustra. You can find out more background information about this concert in our interval talk with Gustavo Dudamel and Albrecht Mayer, principal oboe with the Berliner Philharmoniker.
